Grown Ups 2 Soundtrack List of All the Songs in the Movie
Produced by Adam Sandler
Hands up if you slow danced to Bryan Adam's "Heaven" at your high school prom. If so, you're gonna love the music on Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 Soundtrack with a list chock full of songs from the 80s. I love that they even included the more obscure Haircut 100's "Love Plus One". MC Hammer and Frankie Goes to Hollywood made the cut along with The Outfield, New Order, April Wine, Warrant, Howard Jones, Billy Idol with Generation X, J. Geils Band, Billy Squier, Eddie Money and REO Speedwagon. Additional music from Lizzy D, PlaceMints and The Cataracs featuring DEV.
It's kinda sorta Grown Ups 2 with the return of Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock & David Spade with the exception of Rob Schneider. Official word is that Schneider was not included because of scheduling commitments. What else does the guy have going on? Did he get on Sandler's bad side or think he was worth more?
The cast also includes Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Taylor Lautner, Andy Samberg, Steve Buscemi, Maya Rudolph, Nick Swardson, Alexander Ludwig, Colin Quinn, Jon Lovitz, Will Forte, Shaquille O'Neal, Cheri Oteri, Arnold Scwarzenegger's son Patrick & SNL alumni Tim Meadows. Sandler's family also appear in the movie including his wife Jacki, his daughter Sadie and his son Jared.
The Grown Ups 2 Soundtrack Score is being scored by Rupert Gregson-Williams who also wrote the music for Kevin James' Here Comes the Boom as well as Sandler's recent releases That's My Boy and Jack & Jill in addition to writing the score for the original Grown Ups movie and the 2013 upcoming movie release Postman Pat: The Movie - You Know You're the One.
But like many an Adam Sandler movie, no deal has been brokered with the record companies to release either the music or the score. However, you can get most of the hits songs as individual music downloads from iTunes or Amazon.com.
The music editor according to IMDb is J.J. George along with music supervisor Kevin Grady who is also a co-producer on the movie having also worked as a co-producer on the following Sandler movie productions: That's My Boy, Jack and Jill, Just Go With It, Grown Ups, Bedtime Stories, You Don't Mess with the Zohan (co-producer), I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, Click, The Longest Yard and 50 First Dates.
Directed by Dennis Dugan, Grown Ups 2 was released initially in theaters in the U.S., Brazil & Spain on July 12, 2013 before being released the following week in Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Russia and Portugal. In August, the movie will be released in Denmark, Ireland, Norway, the UK, Sweden & Taiwan. Australia & Argentina can expect the movie to be released in September while France will have to wait until October 2, 2013.
If you're wondering if you can take your kids to see Sandler's latest movie, it should be fine as the movie is rated PG-13 meaning there may be some material not suitable for children to view and parent guidance is suggested.

All the Songs in the Movie
If there's one thing about Adam Sandler movies that makes them tick is that they usually feature great music. Whether the movie ends up being a bust or not, you can at least count on the music being awesome. Nothing like Warrant's "Cherry Pie" to provide the perfect sass and ironic punchline to a car wash scene that's shown in the movie's preview trailers. Hilarious. Andy Sandberg as a naughty cheerleader makes getting clean look dirty.
"End of the World (Party One More Time)" - The PlaceMints featuring Boogieman
"Dancing on Top of the World" (R8d!O's New Swag Remix) - The PlaceMints
"Bass Down Low" - The Cataracs featuring Dev
"Never Tell an Angel" - The Stompers
"Pizzicato Polka" - Written by Johann Strauss II
"Everybody Get Wasted" - Lizzy D
"Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor (FÃ¼r Elise)" - Written by Ludwig van Beethoven
Classic Rock, Pop & Dance Songs - From the 70s, 80s & More
It's so funny how a song can appear dormant for so many years, then bam, April Wine's "Roller" suddenly shows up in two summer movies as it was also used in the Sandra Bullock Melissa McCarthy cop movie "The Heat". From South of the border, it's Canadian rockers, April Wine. The other rock songs that round out the soundtrack are "Cherry Pie" from Warrant used in the car wash scene. More pop than rock, there's The Outfield's "Say It Isn't So".
Looking up Bryan Adams "Heaven" gave me a chance to stumble upon this acoustic performance of his 80s ballad that's worth a listen. Eddie Money's nostalgic pop rock ballad "I Wanna Go Back" is also in the film. REO Speedwagon's "Live Every Moment" also celebrates living life time the fullest right here and right now.
Representing the 70s. Songs from '77 & '78. It seems like Warren Zevon's song "Werewolves of London" has never really faded into the background. But it was good to see that music supervisor Kevin Grady pulled out lesser known songs "Driver's Seat" from Sniff 'n' the Tears, "Toein' the Line" from Rocky Burnette and there's also Meatloaf's "Bat Out of Hell".
Billy Squier has also been popping up a lot lately, in Grown Ups 2 it's with "Lonely is the Night", the song used in a party scene where Adam Sandler as Lenny Feder comes face to face with someone that used to bully him.
80s Songs in Grown Ups 2 - Warning: Once You Start Clicking You Won't Stop
I tried to find the ultimate 80s collection that had all the songs in Grown Ups 2 and that was an impossible but fun task. What would happen is I'd look up one artist like Haircut 100 and get turned on to an 80s compilation with new wave or dance songs. Then I'd look up Billy Idol and it would be some 80s dance or pop mix. So click on any of the albums below and you'll find more than enough collections to fill a decade.
Yes, I'm enough to remember seeing MC Hammer in concert when he was touring with this song. This is a man that knew no limits. I'm sure his elaborate stage productions contributed to his financial woes. Before there was a Lady Gaga it was Hammer time and he knew how to throw down with elaborate stage sets and a ton of dancers all doing their thang in sync. Did you see MC Hammer and Psy on this year's New Year's Rockin' Eve?
Check out the great 80s hair on The Romantics. Even though only one of their songs is in the movie, click on the album cover to wax nostalgic about their other great hits such as "Talking In Your Sleep" and "What I Like About You".
J. Geils Band Appears in Grown Ups 2 - The Legendary Rockers Perform in a Pool Scene
To see a picture of Peter Wolf with Selma Hayek, click here. The band has 5 songs in the movie including "Centerfold", "Give It to Me", "Where Did Our Love Go", "Nighttime" and "Ain't Nothing But a House Party".
"Centerfold" and "Nighttime" are available on this greatest hits album.
[It Ain't Nothin' But A] House Party, Give it to Me and Where Did Our Love Go are on this "Best Of" album. While not in the movie, the song "I Do" by the J. Geils Band is on one of the movie trailers.
Separated at Birth Peter Wolf & Adam Levine - Music Video For Centerfold
I don't think of seen this video for "Centerfold" since it came out on MTV or VH1 back in the 80s. But at a quick glance, I hadn't even realized how much Maroon 5's Adam Levine (The Voice) resembles Peter Wolf to some degree. Wolf could easily be mistaken as his uncle, cousin or some other relative. Or perhaps it's just Levine's thin build that's similar to Wolf's stick frame and their pronounced cheek bones that make me think they resemble one another.
Songs in the Grown Ups 2 Movie Trailers & Ads - Doobie Brothers, Warrant, Poison
- China Grove by the Doobie Brothers
It just takes a few strums of the guitar to register the iconic chords of the Doobie Brothers classic song and they don't even have to hit the vocals. It's great to see the song is back as one of the top MP3 pop/soft rock downloads on Amaz.com
- I Do by J. Geils Band
If you're wondering what's the retro sounding song with the lyrics "Do I Love You", it's one of the many songs J. Geils Band associated with the Grown Ups 2 movie sequel.
- Since You Been Gone by Rainbow
Not to be confused with Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone", Rainbow takes us back to the 70s when it was a hit for the band from the album Down to Earth released in 1979.
- Put Your Hands in the Air and Wave 'Em Like You Just Don't Care
If you're wondering about the song where the cop tells them to put there hands up in the parking lot of the shopping center, itturns out there's a ton of songs that use this line in their songs or something similar. Remember Cameo's "Word Up" which tells ya to "wave your hands in the air".
- Nothing But a Good Time by Poison
Aaaah, it's coming back to me now, the pretty boy rock bands of the 80s where the lead singers had some pretty impressive manes and Bret Michaels was one of the cutie pies with his dirty blonde locks either pulled under a bandana or cowboy hat.
- Cherry Pie by Warrant
A favorite of pole dancers everywhere and a great song to strut your stuff. Yes, this is the song used in the car wash scene.
- (I Need) Good Love by Kram
For the ad Look Who's Growing Up where the guys all attend the dance recital, at about 9 seconds in, the guitar and drums kick in just before the car washing scene. The song Good Love was also used in the movie This Means War.
- I Don't Care, I Love It by Icona Pop Featuring Charli XCX
For the Grown Ups 2 Viral Video Fratboy Remix, the driving dance beat of Icona Pop narrates the antics.
Music From the First Grown Ups Movie - J. Geils Band, Joe Walsh, Triumph
Watch the Official Preview Videos
In its opening weekend, audiences decided they'd rather be scared than to take their chances with another goofy Adam Sandler comedy choosing to check out the scary movie The Conjuring based on a real life story instead. Could Sandler have lost his golden touch? Is today's movie going audience tired of lame Sandler comedies such as That's My Boy, Just Go With It and Jack and Jill?

Adam Sandler is Back Together With Drew Barrymore - In the Romantic Comedy Blended
After a string of misfit comedies Adam Sandler is getting back with one of his favorite co-stars. After all, it's Drew Barrymore who brought him box office success co-starring in the romantic comedies The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. Being a family man, Sandler has tapped into that theme as of late and Blended follows suit, so I'm not sure if it'll be another flop like Just Go With It.
In this case, it's a movie with a slightly unusual premise. After all, who brings their kids on a first date? So that'll be Drew Barrymore, the former adorable kid in Poltergeist playing a Mommy while Sandler will reprise his role as of late as a Dad. Kind sounds like a Brady Brunch prequel where two families come together.
Currently the movie's in production. Sandler's other project in development is The Ridiculous Six, a western comedy. Perhaps after Grown Ups 2, Sandler in search of a box office hit is seeing if a romcom's the ticket or if his chemistry with Barrymore will carry the movie. Here's Sandler on the set of Blended in Burford, Georgia. Click here. Release Date: May 23, 2014.
